Venezuelan President greets 502nd anniversary of Havana

Caracas, Nov 16 (Prensa Latina) Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro today sent a message of solidarity to the government and people of Cuba, as he greeted the 502nd anniversary of the founding of Havana, capital of the country.

“Venezuela celebrates the 502nd anniversary of the founding of Havana, a World Heritage Site that keeps in its streets the resistance, patriotism and heroism of its people,” the Venezuelan president wrote on the social network Twitter.

The head of state greeted his Cuban counterpart, Miguel Díaz-Canel, and the people of the island on occasion of the celebration, which comes together with the process of reactivation of the socioeconomic life in the country and the improvement of the epidemiological situation.

Havana’s historic center was declared a World Heritage Site in 1982 by the United Nations Educational and Cultural Organization, and in 2016 the city was awarded the title of Wonder City.

The day before, Díaz-Canel attended the traditional act to commemorate the foundation of the city, accompanying the pilgrimage from the Plaza de Armas to El Templete where the ceremony takes place under a ceiba tree.

The president was also present at the unveiling of a life-size bronze statue in honor of Eusebio Leal (1942-2020), former historian of Havana.
